Infor-Med prepares patients for hospital treatments with the use of validated, 360° virtual reality (VR) videos. The videos provide a lifelike experience, so patients already know what to expect in the hospital. By watching the videos, patients are better informed regarding their treatment or intervention, and are less anxious.
The Infor-Med concept improves healthcare by combining the information needs of patients, medical expertise and state-of-the art communication tools. The concept is unique because the scripts for the information videos are made and validated based on needs of the patients and experience of the healthcare professionals. Patients can watch the 360° VR videos in the hospital with VR glasses and at home with the use of their smartphone.
The specific Infor-Med videos match the information needs of patients regarding a treatment or intervention, improves their knowledge and thereby give more depth to the conversation between doctor and patients, and between patients and their loved ones. In addition, the fear of the unknown diminishes and the preparation for treatment improves. Is your desired video yet not available? We can discuss the possibilities of producing a new video.
Implementing the Infor-Med 360° VR information videos in the care process adds substantially to personalized healthcare and strengthening patients’ own management.
